We’ve all been there, trawling numerous job search engines that claim they are your ‘answer to getting hired’. You’ve found the perfect job, have uploaded your latest and greatest tailored CV and clicked that ‘apply now’ button, only to get no response.
What if we told you there was a smarter way to job search?
Most vacancies advertised on job search engines will tell you the name of the company hiring. Once you’ve found their website apply online, or send a copy of your tailored CV and cover letter/email to the specified person. If you can’t find the vacancy give them a call to find out what process you need to follow.
Networking events allow you to meet like-minded individuals including potential employers who may be recruiting. Think of these events as an interview; dress smart, take copies of your CV and prepare for potential interview-like questions. LinkedIn is also a fantastic way to network as it gives employers a direct connection to you and your work history.
A vast amount of vacancies aren’t advertised as they are still passed on through word of mouth. Get chatting to friends and family as they may know of vacancies within their networks, or in the companies they are working for.
If you want to take that next step to becoming job search savvy, which includes one-to-one support with writing applications, tailored CV’s and cover letters/emails, give us a call on 01792 284450.
